The Great Dictator:
is a comedy film by Charlie Chaplin released in October 1940. Like most Chaplin films, he wrote, produced, and directed, in addition to starring as the lead. Having been the only Hollywood film maker to continue to make silent films well into the period of sound films, this was Chaplin’s first true talking picture as well as his most commercially successful film.[1]
At the time of its first release, the United States was still formally at peace with Nazi Germany. Chaplin’s film advanced a stirring, controversial condemnation of Adolf Hitler, Benito Mussolini’s fascism, antisemitism, and the Nazis, whom he excoriates in the film as “machine men, with machine minds and machine hearts”.

“This is the story of the period between two world wars–an interim during which insanity cut loose, liberty took a nose dive, and humanity was kicked around somewhat.”

Städte in Angst – Wie sich Metropolen vor Terror schützen:
Film von Dagmar Brendecke und Walter Brun

Straßenverkehr in Hefei, China (Quelle: PHOENIX/rbb/Container TV, Bern)
New York, London, Madrid – und Oslo. Mit jedem terroristischen Anschlag wächst die Angst und das Bedrohungsgefühl in den Großstädten. In New York kam der Angriff aus der Luft, in London mit der U-Bahn, in Oslo per Auto und Boot, doch wo und wie wird der nächste erfolgen? Symbolhafte Orte sind potenzielle Ziele: das Brandenburger Tor als Magnet für Touristen und direkt nebenan die amerikanische Botschaft? Der Reichstag? Der Hauptbahnhof? Wer eine Gesellschaft treffen will, greift Städte an – in ihrem Alltag. Denn Städte sind – trotz aller Sicherheitsvorkehrungen – verwundbar und die Menschen in ihnen schutzlos. Wie verändert die Angst vor dem Terror das Lebensgefühl der Großstädter? Kameras, Sensoren und Computer geben Sicherheit, doch sie beobachten auch jeden unserer Schritte, können auf “Abweichungen vom Normalen” achten. Geht unsere individuelle Freiheit in der Stadt verloren, wenn aus Sicherheitsüberlegungen der Alltag in ihr lückenlos überwacht wird? Ändert sich unser Gefühl von “Freiheit” und verstehen wir “Privatheit” in Zukunft anders?

“Städte in Angst” zeigt, wie sich das Leben in der Stadt durch die Bedrohung verändert. Sinnlich erfahrbar wird die zerbrechliche Balance zwischen unserem Bedürfnis nach Sicherheit und dem Wunsch nach Freiheit.

Graffiti Wars:
Graffiti – the work of mindless vandals or creative practitioners? To some it is art, to others a sign we’ve lost control of our cities.

Since Roman times graffiti has been a form of anti-establishment rebellion. But today it’s transcending social nuisance to gain cultural and artistic credibility, unprecedented prices at auction and even presidential and prime ministerial approval.

However, at street level a bitter war is being waged between graffiti writers, street artists and the authorities. While graffiti writers face trial and prison sentences for their art, some street artists’ work is lauded and protected behind Perspex.

This issue is at the heart of a graffiti war being fought on the streets of London between one of the founding fathers of the British graffiti scene and the most famous street artist in the world.

In London over the past 18 months the tension between the camps has played out in a battle of spray cans between freehand graffiti writer King Robbo and his nemesis, the stencil-using street artist Banksy.

The graffiti war between the two men began in the early 90s but was re-ignited by what was widely seen as an unforgiveable transgression of strict graffiti rules by Banksy.

It was an act that pulled 80s legend King Robbo out of retirement to retaliate in the place where it all began, the streets.

The film goes behind enemy lines as the war escalates, until tragic and unforeseen circumstances bring about an unexpected ceasefire.
